Is it too hard to make a keyboard?

Searching the Internet on a mobile phone is okay at the best of times when you are using a touch screen and I can understand why they include them as they allow the devices to become thinner, smaller and all that bollocks but is it seriously that hard to make a good mobile phone that has a good physical keyboard that actually runs modern operating systems?

Although its been a while from when I last used it but the last phone I could remember that had a really good physical keyboard that you could actually write emails on, documents and hell even post on community forums when they still used to exist was the o2 XDA Exec (HTC Universal was the original phone name before it was branded).

So what is actually that hard to make a phone that has a very good keyboard? I know Blackberry at times do make phones that has keyboard but my experiences with those tend to be very bad and hell I do not even see many third-party add-ons to popular phones to add a physical keyboard and even far less for Android phones.
